AllCrossword has created a common space where the community of people who like to have fun solving or creating puzzles can express their creativity and enjoy a challenging crossword.

We are confident that creating crosswords does not need to be an activity reserved only for professionals or erudites, or individuals with some special kind of art or skill for combining words. By offering this service we intend to prove it. We believe that anyone, regardless of their educational or cultural background, can deploy their abilities and broaden their cultural horizons with practice and perseverance while having a good time working on solving or creating crosswords.

AllCrossword takes the complexity of deploying a crossword, and uses modern technology to simplify the editing process making the task simpler, allowing the creator the flexibility to increase their knowledge, stimulate their mind and keep their intellect active while enjoying this activity without the burden of pen and pencil techniques.

If you are a teacher, you may find this application useful to test your student’s skills by creating fun crossword puzzles for them to complete.

Or you may have a strong interest in developing and enriching your mental abilities in a pleasant way. Our website does not target any user profile in particular. It's for everybody and it belongs to everybody.

The idea for this application came from the reading of several articles that presented the inherent advantages of the creative use of language and mathematics in the solution of puzzles like crosswords and sudokus, to stimulate brain function, promote brain activity, strengthen memory and defer the loss of mental agility. Working on a puzzle, in addition to representing a ludic role, releasing endorphins and activating the centers of pleasure within the cerebral cortex, prevents the risk of cognitive impairment. People who perform them frequently force themselves to use strategies of memory, attention, reasoning and logic. The brain is not like a road in which the more cars travel, the more the asphalt gets worn out. What happens in the brain is quite the opposite, the more it is used, the more it gets activated.

So here we are. We took this project forward and now we are hoping to work on improving it in the future.
